Double Embossing

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to share a technique and a card I made that was featured in CardMaker magazine, the 2013 techniques issue. Several other designers' cards from the Sparkle N Sprinkle designer team were also featured in this issue. You can click here to see them through the rest of the month of October.

To make the background I inked up the front of the Couture Creations - Passion embossing folder with Versa Mark ink and ran it through my cuttlebug.

I quickly added Candlelight glitter embossing powder to the card and heat set it.

Next I used teal ink and a sponge to apply the color over some of the raised areas and then I applied purple ink.

Here is the finished background. You can really see the sparkle!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have fun trying this sparkly technique. Have a wonderful and blessed day!
